Before and After Pictures

I love before and after pictures. Whether it is for a diet program or a work out supplement, it is a great way to advertise a product.  It is an even better way to advertise the good news of Jesus.  I would love to be an after picture for Jesus!  Wouldn’t you?

A New Season

Hebrews 10:23: “Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.”


Here in the Deep South we’re never quite sure when the fall season will truly find us. We’re always hopeful for a day where the stifling humidity breaks and the temperature stays out of the 90s, maybe even the 80s, but we’re never quite sure when it will hit. When it comes, we’re thankful.

Honest Tea is a company that sells organic bottled tea, and has established an annual ritual to determine how well people demonstrate the quality described by its company name.  According to USA Today, the company scored honesty by setting up unattended kiosks in 61 cities, where its beverages were available for $1.  A clear, locked box was left for people to make payments.

“Oh how I love your law!”

Committed to reading through the Bible in one year, my speed reading skidded to a screeching halt one hot July morning when my eyes caught Psalm 119:97. Did the writer say love? Wasn’t affection for law an emotion reserved only for law students and political science majors?

When the Bozemans came in the gym recently, a buzz rustled through the folks from our church, Gateway Baptist. We were watching an Eastwood Christian School volleyball game and some of our girls were playing with a good number of parents and youth there to cheer the girls on. Ruth was in her motorized wheel chair, as she has been in one form or another for over 60 years since she was struck with polio as a 25-year-old wife and mother of two young children. Ray was by her side, as he has been for 67 years. You cannot say the name of one without the other. It is always “Ray and Ruth.” They are one.

Wives, Do You Pray?

“If I fail to spend two hours in prayer each morning, the devil gets the victory through the day. I have so much business I cannot get on without spending three hours daily in prayer.”

Is Busyness Threatening Your Marriage?

Recently, a friend shared that her family was caught up in the trap of being BUSY.  “Being Under Satan’s Yoke” is how she put it.  Kind of gets your attention, doesn’t it?  She shared, “With all good intentions, we have allowed our family to become way too busy.”  We talked about the busy schedules our families keep each week—the children’s activities, homework, volunteering at church and school, helping our husbands, housework, jobs, and the list goes on and on.  Our daily lives leave little room for anything unexpected—we have very little “white space” on our pages.  If you place two documents on the table before you—one page crowded with many words and very little white space between paragraphs or in the margins—and the other document showing wide margins and lots of white space—which page would you choose to reflect your life?  Do you need to build in more “white space”?
